All Critics (12) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (12)

  • "A Life In Dirty Movies" hooks you with its title, then surprises by supplementing its salacious material with a charming look at the couple who made those dirty movies.

    September 19, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Wiktor Ericsson's "A Life in Dirty Movies" outlines this filmmaker's work reasonably well, but, somewhat surprisingly, truly hits home with a heartwarming look at Mr. Sarno's relationship with his wife, Peggy.

    September 18, 2014 | Full Review…
  • It's a sweet, inspiring story.

    September 16, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • A Life in Dirty Movies is a celebration of an unusual talent, but also an elegy for an unfulfilled life.

    September 16, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Instead of over-glorifying their shared past, Ericsson pays loving tribute to what remains of his subjects' relationship.

    September 16, 2014 | Full Review…
  • This is worthwhile simply as an introduction to Sarno's work, but it also presents a touching portrait of the 89-year-old artist and his wife, Peggy Steffans, who appeared in his films all those years ago and remains his biggest fan and tenderest friend.
